Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Damn. Found a tick on me as I was getting ready to shower - it hadn't completely dug in, but it made a mark and it smarts. And of course this creeps me out enough that lots of stuff went into the washer after that, even the bag that lines my laundry basket (where I had dropped my clothes right before I found the tick). I'm going to have to get the big container of beneficial nematodes and next time it rains give the yard a good soak, especially under the pine trees, that are probably where they've established themselves. They have a stage in the ground so that's where the nematodes come in. The dogs are on Revolution every month, but I may get them extra tick collars.

Productive weekend, in general, though there are a few things I planned that I didn't get to. As usual. Lots of cooking today so I have a variety of foods to take for lunch. I swung by Goodwill but it was closed, and though people had decided to leave their stuff piled outside their door I left mine in the car and will take it by when the store is open.
